Every school has a school council—a group focused on helping all students succeed. School councils are groups of parents, community representatives, teaching and non-teaching employees, students and the school principal. Through the active participation of parents, school councils work to improve student achievement and enhance the accountability of the education system to parents.
Support for school councils is provided by the Simcoe County District School Board’s Parent Involvement Committee.
Why join us on school council?
Involvement in school council is a meaningful, hands-on way to have a direct, positive impact on your child’s educational experience. Research shows that when parents are involved in their child’s education, the level of student achievement increases.
Thank you to all parents who were able to attend our first two council meetings. As well, a very big thank you to all of our parents and families who volunteer within the school in many different ways including helping out in the classrooms, reading with students, helping out on field trips, as well as helping out with our Annual Bazaar. Your support is valued and appreciated!
Our next council meeting is on Tuesday February 6th at 7:00 pm in the library. All parents are welcome.
